Free at last!

I did end up releasing the overwinters on Sunday night. Cinnamon, Peanut, Willie, Ellie, Piggy, Chicken, Gonzo, Fozzy, Raquel and Phoenix are officially free raccoons! It was a lot of fun watching them run around and play like maniacs!
Piggy wasted no time and was the first one out.
Willie was the last one out! Too many memories of what happened the last time he was released here perhaps?? LOL But he finally took the plunge and joined the rest of the gang!
I stayed and enjoyed watching their antics until they all finally drifted further off and it started getting dark....

The part I hate most.....saying goodbye and leaving....hoping they do OK out there on their own!


  1. You are a Saint my friend.

  2. What about River and Witchey? Where are the two girls??

  3. I held them over...River had a seizure a while back so I kept her longer just to make sure they don't continue or get worse....she and Witchy are very bonded so I kept them together and they can help teach the new kids then go in the fall with them.
